The Authentic Flavors of Mexico
For the best Mexican food in Mountain View, head to ViVe Sol. Specializing in the dishes of Puebla, Mexico's culinary cradle, this hotspot draws foodies and regular folks who love its impressive menu, including lots of vegetarian options. One of our favorite dishes is the Mole Poblano, a magical mix of sundried peppers, spices, nuts, seeds and, herbs and cocoa beans served over chicken. If you love a dark, aromatic mole, we think you'll agree. Although the Mountain View location just minutes from our Mountain View hotel, the restaurant has become so popular that they've opened a second location in Palo Alto, should you find yourself heading in that direction. The ceviche is amazing, as is "great grandma's special" Pollo Guajillo, based on a 19th century Old World recipe. Having the best margaritas doesn't hurt, either. It's a smaller place that doesn't take reservations, so go early and enjoy. You can thank us later for saving you the trip to Puebla.
